Frank Gilroy Physiotherapy Glasgow
I am a consultant Physiotherapist with 27 years’ experience working in the NHS and 17 years working at Hampden Sports Clinic. Currently, I am seeing patients at my clinics in Cardonald, near Paisley and Hyndland in the West End of Glasgow. This includes insured patients who I previously saw at Hampden Sports Clinic and those referred from Ross Hall and Nuffield hospitals.
I aim to see patients 1 or 2 times and will provide advice and exercise resources that will enable them to continue their rehabilitation at home.
You can also book an appointment with experienced Physiotherapist Kirstie Russell at my Cardonald clinic by calling her directly on: 07879063316. For more information on Kirstie see below.
About Frank Gilroy
Upon graduating in Physiotherapy in Glasgow, Scotland in 1985 I spent 27 years working as a Physiotherapist within the NHS gaining experience in all areas of Physiotherapy including A ± E, paediatrics and orthopaedics. I gained my Masters in Biomechanics from Strathclyde University, Glasgow in 2009.
I have previously worked with Celtic FC and currently do clinical work with the Jockey club, the Scottish football association and the Scottish rugby union. In addition to my clinical work, I am a visiting Physiotherapy lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University and the Physiotherapy advisor to the Glasgow Sports Surgery Service (GSSS).
Numerous Physiotherapy post-op exercise protocols are available on this website that I have written for use after surgery, for example the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction Programme which I wrote with Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon Colin Walker. I encourage patients to take responsibility for their own health and completion of their physiotherapy exercises.
I work very closely with many of the orthopaedic specialists in Glasgow and Edinburgh and see many patients who have had surgery at Ross Hall and Nuffield hospitals, Glasgow. I am registered with all insurance companies.
Kirstie graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiotherapy in 1997 and worked in the NHS for many years, gaining experience in orthopaedics, musculoskeletal injuries, hydrotherapy and general rehabilitation. Following this, Kirstie travelled to Australia where she worked with Aussie rules football teams, rugby teams and gymnasts, gaining vast knowledge of sports injuries and Pilates rehabilitation.
Upon returning to Scotland, Kirstie worked for 15 years at BMI Ross Hall hospital in Glasgow, where she was part of the senior hospital management team. Here she developed expertise in post-surgical orthopaedic rehabilitation and worked very closely with the orthopaedic and neurosurgery consultants. Kirstie is also fully trained in musculoskeletal acupuncture and Pilates rehabilitation and has a lot of experience in treating patients with low back, neck and pelvic pain as well as post-natal physiotherapy.
